Questions about this item?

Lloyd Loom Furniture
In the early 1900s Marshall Burns Lloyd, an American, received several patents for his process of using loomed twisted kraft paper, partially reinforced with steel wire and woven to be stronger and more attractive than wicker.
The new loomed woven fabric meant that a chair could be produced in a quarter of the time it took to make a rattan or wicker version. The end product was not only more beautiful but much more durable, as well.
In America, Mr. Lloyd`s product became quite famous. His company was merged with Heywood-Wakefield, who went out of business in the 1980s.
The British Invasion
In Europe, the manufacturer in London purchased the rights and specialized equipment from Lloyd Manufacturing in 1921 and became hugely successful. But having been bombed in WWII, and the necessary materials for production unavailable due to the War effort, the company never recovered and discontinued operations in 1960.
Over the years, Lloyd Loom British Woven Fibre Furniture has been seen on ocean liners, in hotels and tearooms; it became standard issue for the British Army and RAF all over the world; it even graced the Royal Boxes at Wimbledon, Henley and Twickenham and is often seen "keeping the British end up" at Royal functions.
